This year's theme is "DIY @ YOUR LIBRARY" -- don't you love it?

I am not great with technology. My cellphone and I are barely on speaking terms. Which can be weird. I cannot download media content when sent in an IM. And I really miss Widgetbox because, though the quality was crappy, it was so easy to use!

Needless to say, I’ve always had a bit of fear around Teen Tech Week. It’s cool and I want to celebrate. However, I’m not exactly a robot-building kind of girl. So, what’s a luddite to do?

I’ve decided to build a virtual (as in—only in my mind) Time Machine and travel to the worlds of some of my favorite books for DIY of a less technological or present-day time.

LITTLE HOUSE IN THE BIG WOODS…make butter or maple sugar candy
GOING VINTAGE…embellish a vintage dress to create a cool wearable
THE HUNGER GAMES…relearn archery (I did this in high school and it was awesome)

Into what novel would you (virtually) travel? What would you DIY?
